Wet Notes 8-30-21

"This is wet notes here on scuba shack radio for monday august thirtieth two thousand and twenty one. Well we have certainly had our fill of extreme weather lately just last week here. In connecticut we face the challenges of tropical storm on re just barely below hurricane strength and at the last minute it shifted east and we avoided the brunt of the wind rhode island wasn't as fortunate and now we have item a cat for hurricane hit louisiana. Extreme weather is now the norm. The news keeps getting worse. Recently there was a study published by nicholas bars from the potsdam institute for climate impact research and that was that the gulfstream could be varying towards irreversible collapse. Now the gulf stream is part of the atlantic meridional overturning circulation or a. m. Oc this circulation takes warm salty. Water from the tropics moves in north and then takes the cold water south. The study finds that the circulation is at its weakest in one thousand years. So what happens if the gulfstream collapses that will dictate extreme cold for parts of north america and europe. Is the collapse imminent well. That's not an easy question. Answer it could be decades away but as we have seen things are happening a lot faster when it comes to climate change not only will the disruption of the gulfstream resort in colder north american temperatures. It is predicted that there will be a rise in sea level disruption of the monsoon patterns and impacts on the amazon rainforest. An aunt arctic ice sheets. The study concluded that is that this is all a result of human endorse induced climate. Change in may of this year. I talked about a project out on lake. Tahoe called cleanup lake. That project had an ambitious goal of cleaning over seventy two miles of the mountain lake. So i thought i would give it a quick update on how the work is progressing. Now these numbers come from the cleanup delake website. Cleanup delete dot org as earlier this month. Team of divers has removed an amazing eight thousand. One hundred and twenty two pounds of trash were three hundred and three thousand six hundred eighty four kilograms and covered about twenty two miles or thirty four kilometers of coastline. There update indicated that they have completed seventy four dives over twenty seven days of diving. The diver's consumed two hundred and eighty six cylinders of air. Today there have been eighty one volunteers who have delivered two thousand six hundred and eleven volunteer hours. Now i'm not sure if they're on pace to meet their objectives but that's not always the measure success. The amount of continuing effort is what really counts. Keep up the good work guys. The annual boston sea rovers clinic for this year is just one month away. The two thousand twenty clinic happened just a couple of weeks. Before the corona corona virus lockdowns took effect. We really didn't know how serious things were then. Now as we continue to emerge from the pandemic the show may just have the distinction of being the last face to face. Scuba show in the world before the pandemic and the first face-to-face scuba show in the world post pandemic monty. And i were at the last meeting. And everything's proceeding for the october. First and second show the show will follow state and local mandates and as the days pass by. We are all hoping that the show will go off his plan. This year shows moved from the traditional march date to october as a result of the pandemic that you'd be a great time to enjoy some early fall weather in new england. It'd be great to get together and diving is certainly a social sport. Do you miss dive training magazine. I sure do. I think i've re reread all the back issues. We have a good shop at least three times. So what's happening with the publication. Well i reached out to catherine castle garcia the editor to find out the latest catherine informed me that they hope to be publishing again in the fourth quarter of two thousand and twenty one. Now that's some good news. The fourth quarter is not that far away. And i'm certainly looking forward to dive training magazine hitting the streets and finally here on wet notes. I wanted to give you an update on the situation with dutch springs. If you remember last time. I reported that the property owned by stu jill school had been sold to trammell crow texas developer. Who's planning to build a large warehouse facility on the property. The initial word was that dutch would shut down after the season while a lot has happened in the last couple of weeks i there was a petition that garnered over three thousand supporters to keep the place open and as we know petitions can only go so far then there was support from patty professional association of diving instructors patty due to white paper outlining the economic benefits dutch brings provides as a diving venue. Patty estimates that because dutch exists. It helps to generate three point. Four billion annual retail sales in the northeast they tag the economic benefit to bethlehem at thirty four point five million as for tax revenue. The paper indicates that about ninety. Eight point nine million is generated for state and local taxes and northeast and about two point one million for bethlehem in addition to patty support. The lehigh valley planning commission has called the proposal of disaster for the quality of life in the lehigh valley while it seems that there a great deal of opposition to maybe very little that can be done to stop the effort. One positive. I that i did see. Was that trammell. Crow was indiscretions with local officials to offload the fifty off lou to fifty acre quarry for community use. Just how would you get to acquire if they build the warehouses. I don't know while the saga is far from over. I would expect that we won't see. Dutch brings open for the twenty twenty two dive season but his al michaels once said. Do you believe in miracles. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes.

"I is now a tropical storm that has left devastation in. its wake for our neighbors in louisiana. I'm craig cohen today on houston matters. What the storm did and what he stony and should take away from it and is houston takes in some louisiana residents who came here ahead of ida. We learn how the bayou cities helped some four legged louisiana's we also discuss. How dogs and cats can help us in times of crisis and learn about a houston. Isd program that offers just one example. Also this hour as the deadline looms for final withdrawal from afghanistan. We hear from a former combat interpreter. Now living in houston who has become an american citizen. His extended conversation with andrew. Schneider's ahead plus the houston astros head into the stretch run. Will there be one last long. Playoff ride for carlos correa. We'll start with a news update from npr news. Eighty eight seven stabilize. This is houston matters. I'm craig cohen good morning coming up the latest on ida and what the storm. That's devastated our neighbors in louisiana might remind us in particular in light of the ongoing pandemic. Also it's not just people but pets as well that have come to houston from louisiana plus as us forces scramble to evacuate americans afghan allies ahead of tuesday's troop withdrawal deadline. We hear from a houston. Ian was an interpreter for the us military. There we start though with now. Tropical storm ida. We're just now beginning to get a sense of the devastation. Wrought by the now downgraded storm which tore through new orleans and other communities in and around the louisiana gulf coast making landfall as a category four hurricane. Ida's left all of orleans. Parish without power same for many surrounding parishes outages in fact now stretch across louisiana mississippi. And it's believed some folks could be without electricity for weeks. Louisiana hospitals are relying on generators and they had to ride out the storm while at or near full capacity as hospitals across the south were unable to take in very many patients ahead of the storm as they've all been overwhelmed with covert nineteen cases underscoring the repercussions of low vaccination that double-whammy of kovic and eita was on houston mayor sylvester turner's mind sunday. This time the storm went to louisiana next time. The storm could come very much at texas and pacific this city. You don't want to wait and not be fascinated and then when something like this happens you know you. You're unprepared so Do everything we can to assist people coming from louisiana but at the same time they mean courage houstonians to take this as kind of a warning to Put your your hurricane together. Get fascinated and be prepared just in case the storm comes away next time houston mayor sylvester turner on sunday. Ida arrived four years after harvey and sixteen years after katrina. How does it compare. Let's talk through that now. With national weather service. Meteorologist dan riley. Hi dan good morning. I how strong was ida as it. Blew into and through louisiana over the last twenty four hours. I was a high and category four storm hundred and fifty miles per hour sustained winds. There was actually a ship. Observation of a wind gust of one hundred seventy five so This was one of the strongest storms to ever hit louisiana It ties laura from last year And then there was a storm back in the eighteen. Hundreds harvey was also a category for When it made landfall down the coast near rockport. And how does this compare to katrina. Since that's also so much in in people's minds sixteen years to the day katrina was the larger hurricane and was actually a five offshore But when it had made when it made landfall. It was a category three in terms of wind but because it was a larger hurricane it actually produced greater storm surge so You know certainly both devastating storms. There's been a lot of medication since katrina with the new flow protection system and By and large. I think it's job this time. Where is ida now. I didn't end Has gotten into the state of mississippi since southwest mississippi Maximum sustained winds forty five miles per hour so it is a weakening thankfully and forecast to Right now tracking to the north at eight miles per hour gonna take more of a northeast track as we go through the day and then pick up speed as go into tomorrow. Would ida have been as strong if it had tracked this way. I think so The the gulf waters are very warm. they were very warm near the louisiana coast and Equally as warm near the texas coast so all other things being equal It would not have been surprising at all to see Agrarian tensor cain. Had it come our way of course. In the days and weeks to come we're going to learn more about The the impact that has had in louisiana Let's leave it behind just for the moment though. Are there any other storms or storms and development. The that we should be aware of here. there is The hurricane center is looking down towards central america Kind of where. This storm developed There is a low chance of development down in that area over the next five days There's no strong signal. texas Type storm at this point but This time of year should something developed down there. We'll have to watch it carefully. And i guess i it is a good example of how quickly these things can develop. I mean it was. Maybe what is Late as wednesday when we were getting a sense of the seriousness of of this storm and the fact that it could very well track to the gulf coast. Not only that the track Early on with ida was very uncertain. Initially thinking was mexico and in texas and then finally When it became more clear it was going to be able to meet the anna storm as we got into wednesday and especially thursday so This time of year. You really have to stay tuned to the forecast. Almost every day we've known for for months. This was projected to be a more active than usual hurricane season yet. It was also awfully quiet from june through mid august. Should we anticipate more activity over the next month or two. Yes book quiet periods in july. Early august actually are not that uncommon Last year was busier during that period. We had hannah and others So but now that we're in too late august in september i would expect more storms. In fact there's i believe four systems out there now. Just most of them are in the open waters. So we really to get through the month of september To feel better about things here in texas usually the october storms and later have a tendency to track away. But you know not other question. We can october stormers. Well yeah we. We characterize hurricane season as june through november But always with a lot of focus on on august and into september and. I'm wondering if i is it your impression that the height the peak of hurricane season is may be shifting a little bit later than it was many years ago. No i think Late august and september are still Probably the peak for us here in texas now last year we did have a late. October storm That was pretty close. zeta Tracked a up toward mississippi. You know the northern gulf coast And we have had the hurricane jerry Many years ago. That was october fifteenth. So i guess. I haven't seen a tendency to shift The peak of the season four texas. But you.

"Help continues to trickle into haiti almost a week. After seven point two magnitude earthquake shook the country part of that help is local as massachusetts has the third largest haitian community here in america. In a moment we'll speak with the director of build health international health care non profit based in beverly. But first let's spend a few moments with jeremiah. Do say he's a senior project manager with bill health. He called us from loci haiti where he's currently stationed on the ground and his cell phone connection was shaky but we wanted to hear directly from someone there in the disaster zone and we began with those relief efforts and what he's seeing on the ground. In haiti aci is gonna hit pretty hard. We visited quite a few different health facilities every other house. So it's really tough environment right now. So you know we're we're doing we can't tell now we're talking to you on sort of spotty internet connection. What is it like in terms of power running water. How are people doing on that front so faithfully. We've been pretty good. You've been working with a partner staying at a guest house that they have water and electricity is okay. A lot of silly have seen some Electrical damage you know or broken pipes or whatnot. A lot of flooding do many talking to us a bit about the work that you're doing down there in this role where i'm Doing a lot of coordination with us-based teams and haiti based teams working at different partners to assess you know their health facilities Just basic you know quick Structural assessment making sure facilities are safe to be in the other part of that is which sticks with port-au-prince coordinate distribution of crucial supplies to healthcare facilities in this region. So then how did the tropical storm tropical storm grace impact. That work yet. So i i was on the ground Tropical storm grades hit but tough.

"I'm jamie bologna. Friday means we can review and we'll get there in just a couple of moments but first weather because a hurricane could make landfall in new england this weekend tropical storm unreas- forecast to strengthen into a hurricane as it continues to track northward toward massachusetts and rhode island. This could be the first hurricane to make landfall in eastern massachusetts since hurricane. Bob in nineteen ninety-one hurricane watches and storm surge. Watches are in effect for the cape and islands in the south coast and joining us now for more on what to expect. Wr meteorologist david epstein. Dave welcome back to radio boston bank jamie. Good to be here so unreal. Where is it now when will become a hurricane and when can expect to see it make landfall so at the present time. It's kind of off the coast. If you were on the south east coast of north carolina and you kinda went southeast. You'd end up hitting it. It's a little bit closer to the. Us coast bermuda. But it's kind of in between the two at the present time and it's still as you mentioned tropical storm it does look like it will strengthen according to our projections here it should strengthen into our came probably by tomorrow morning's observations so should remain tropical storm overnight tonight and i think as it gets east of the carolinas north carolina the outer banks probably a hurricane and remaining hurricane strength as it approaches long island year on sunday morning and then probably beginning to weaken into a tropical storm. So how fast is it moving in and where. We expected to make landfall the present time. It's not moving very fast and You know only about six miles an hour and that's one of the problems with it. Typically as storms get into this latitude. They really start speeding up. It's very very unusual as a matter of fact if this were to maintain this slow forward motion. It would be the slowest moving hurricane in this latitude that we've ever recorded so it's it's moving super slowly. Which isn't good because it's gonna produce a lot of rain. It does look like it'll read somewhere around block island. It's probably going to be a little west a little east of that some time on sunday afternoon high tide sunday is later in the evening around eight or nine o'clock down there Hopefully it does. It's going to make impact somewhere so we wanted to make impact during the time of low tide that would be ideal is mid afternoon on sunday so if i understand correctly to the right of the stronger winds to the left of the is stronger rain..

Seventy seven original phonograph recording the first words ever recorded and played back by the same machine. Those famous words of practical poetry were written by a felony englander new hampshire zone sarah jesse for hill. She's a remarkable woman of the nineteenth century. Championing women's rights to work and education. Long before the women's rights convention in seneca falls hill served as america's first successful female literary editor and the godfather of godmother.

Mary had a little lamb was absolutely wonderful. But you did notice unsure that he did not mention who wrote the poem. No so Mary had a little lamb her one of her great achievements that she's known for today at the time That was not necessarily the case. Everybody thought mother goose retina but to answer your question jamie. She was the probably the best known woman of the nineteenth century and she was because of the two magazines that she edited the latest magazine that She became the founding editor of in eighteen. Twenty eight in boston. Which was then purchased by louis cody of salafia in order so that he could get sarah hale as editor of his magazine which became known as cody's ladies book.

"That's where a lot of people just descended into port-au-prince in terms of seeking better opportunities than also jobs but this is still very traumatic. Gripe buildings and churches have collapsed as well I think the difference from two thousand ten in two thousand and eleven is the communication has improved which is interesting right. Two thousand ten weeks of finding people contacting people really online. You know doing email but this time you have. What's that and so a lot of people have been able to connect with their families through that Which has been great. Those displaced injured or outside for fears of aftershocks. But of course as i mentioned tropical storm grace is expected to make landfall tonight and tomorrow morning Has that created a sort of sense of urgency to try to get out there and get boots on the ground to help. Absolutely it has right. I think to tropical grace and again where where in this area of the caribbean haiti is where this always tropical storms but for this to come after this traumatic and horrific. You know earthquake is very troubling because a lot of people are as you said sleeping in the streets right because they're afraid of aftershocks in notch shore but again the communities coming together organizations coming together to really provide support and i can tell you that here in massachusetts having the third largest population you know we also pulling together right. We have partners in health and other organizations have been in touch with governor baker and really working to see. How do we get medical equipment and personnel on the ground to help. So can you tell us about don wh- what is sort of what's coming together here in massachusetts right now. I would say that there are amazing organizations again that have done work I'm gonna lift up really quick partners in health. They built a hospital in haiti comair by land. But they're working with another hospital in that region. Boniface hospital that a lot of the injured are going to and so they're going to need a lot of support in equipment. And so what's what's happening is is these mobilizations that's happening in the haitian community while not just here in massachusetts but in florida and new york and all over the country and so as i get on the phone with me on on the organization. I'm hearing the work that is happening. And that's been a difference too but it's also pinpointing and really working with the nonprofits that haitian lead in haiti that are in these communities that no you know the issues that are happening right now in live current state so for people listening out there who might wanna help. What is haiti. need right now. And what can we do from here in boston. I mean there is so much study's needed right when you think about just compound of everything right. This natural disaster but before this obviously there was the assassination of the president. And so there's a lot of work that is taking place. And i would say for folks to tune in there are organizations that are on the ground. In haiti. that have been doing incredible work. there are organizations here to That have been doing great work. Direct work in haiti. And i can tell you that neon the national haitian american elected officials network is also pulling together to make sure that the nonprofits that are identified a really going to be providing hand on services but as we think of haiti in future state. Right now i think you know after all of this..

"Pull them out They needed plans to In me the morale of the afghan army began to collapse and of course it fell apart when they came out last month to a lot of americans and including folks in the white house. It's seemed to be surprising at the speed of that collapse in the speed of the taliban takeover. Were you surprised at how quickly things fell apart. Afghanistan no i wasn't i. I'm surprised that that the pentagon was You know i spent time on afford operating base afghanistan Working for the us. Army doing information operations. And i got to really know the afghan army Very well and that capacity. I also worked in the country. the cia Tracking the suicide bombers. And both of those roles i've got to know the afghan forces and what i found in my experience is was. It wasn't a cohesive modern fighting force like say the. Us army It was this patchwork of quarreling tribal groups. You know get mangal whose beck's shiite mongol harare's aaron pashtoons persians haji all these groups had fought civil wars and we cobbled together into one army And trend fights for a concept that didn't exist or rushing concept of a nation we try constructing nation In this land. That was almost like game of thrones fan. You know there's all these tribes and there's a huge kosher in this country of tribal defection We thought again the last few weeks. Afghan army units just surrendering and giving it a weapons taleban defections betrayals So it didn't surprise me that army that we built together You know to on after we left fell apart so quickly once the us left and especially once the us withdrew the one thing that was most vocal in in the war. That is us air support so over and over again airport chains of damage because the war as soon as biden pulled the apache helicopters the bombers And we stopped supporting. The afghan troops were air support The the whole game changed. So i do want to ask you. So given what you're describing in terms of the number of groups in the sort of coalition holding together this country the taliban again swiftly toppled that regime. And i'm thinking can the taliban effectively ruling Govern afganistan now or are we looking at more conflict with neighbors and other other countries in the region on very poor leaders When they took over the country of ninety four to ninety six these are semi literate. tribal warriors They don't have any experience in running. Complex theocracies you know. How are they gonna run. Kabul international airport How are they gonna do anything. Then of all running ministries education Did a terrible job..

"This is radio boston. I'm during tropical storm. Warnings already been issued for much of eastern massachusetts as we await the arrival of tropical storm elsa. And if you feel like we haven't dried out yet from all the rain over the weekend you are not alone in fact. Boston just witnessed the wettest first week of july in over one hundred years by a lot after a scorching june. It seems like this volatility has got to leave a mark. wbu our meteorologist. David epstein joins us to talk about that and tell us what to expect as this latest storm arrives. Welcome back to radio boston. Thank you teach on a nice to be here. Great to have you. Dave and let's start with the incoming storm. Walk us through. If you could kind of the time when you expect things to pick up it's going to be rain and wind tonight. Yes so right now. The storm centered over north carolina. So it's still pretty far away and there could be some showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. Especially west of four ninety five. It's not really related to the storm. at all. as a matter of fact we have kind of cool marine air over us right now. If you've been outside today it's rather comfortable but if you were down in new york city it's in the mid eighties and very humid and similar to what we experienced yesterday. So that dividing line is producing some showers and storms The rest of the afternoon into the evening hours. It's really tomorrow morning in the wee hours of the morning. And i'm talking. You know three or four or five o'clock in the morning a slug of rain is going to move up with also. It's moving really fast. So i think between roughly three o'clock in the morning and probably about noontime is when we will see the heaviest rain It'll be ending a little earlier. South western new england. A little later as you get towards the coast of maine and that's when we'll see anywhere from one to three perhaps a few places getting over three inches of rain in a very short period of time how about wind and overall impactful of this storm. Are we looking at flooding power outages. Yeah so i. I don't think it's really that big of a deal to be honest. I mean we've had a lot of rain this month so You know your basement. If you're susceptible to flooding during heavy rain events where you get an inch of rain an hour then you might want to check the sump pump or move things down your basement that typically might get into a wet area I think in terms of win the strongest winds going to be roughly from That sunrise time up until maybe three or four o'clock in the afternoon mostly southeastern massachusetts. So they're wins could gust up to sixty miles an hour in a few places for a few hours tomorrow and because the leaves are still on the trees of course this time of the year the leaves act like little sales and can capture the wind a little more so we could see a higher threshold for power outages or higher amount of power outages than we would typically see with the same wind speed in the dead of winter. Because you don't have the leaves on the trees okay. And this is a tropical storm not a hurricane. Can you kind of remind us of the difference in how we should think about. Something called a tropical storm a tropical storm. In this case. It's a nor'easter right. It just doesn't have snow. It's not winter and it's just basically a moderate nor'easter moving through the area wins between thirty nine miles. An hour and seventy four miles. An hour is the tropical storm category. We won't get to that upper limit. at all and because it's going to hug the coastline the wins that are strongest will be southeastern massachusetts so storms kind of have two sides in the windy side and the wet side. Everything to the right of the center of the storm is windy. Everything to the left of the center. Ice storm is wet so boston Four ninety five belt one twenty eighth route to all on the west side of the storm. So it's really heavy rain. Little travel difficulty tomorrow some big puddles on the roads. Perhaps some street flooding And then on the southeastern side some scattered power outages for sure there'll be some trees down Not nearly as much rain over the cape in the islands. All right and let's talk about rain and rain and rain because when i read that this was the wettest first week of july over a hundred years i mean one hundred years is a really big deal. Are we in something quite unusual here. Yeah i mean. It is definitely unusual. We started the spring really dry. I mean as a gardener. I was sort of lamenting a little bit. Oh are we going to go into a drought this summer and you know it was april and may were kind of dry but it was also beautiful. If you wanted to get outside it was wonderful weather. And then all the sudden june hit and we had the heat and we had plenty of rain in june. And we've certainly had more than enough rain here in july. So now all the sudden we're actually above average for the year. There's was only a drought for a couple of weeks. We've never been in a big drought around here this year. Anyway there's still a little bit of drought left on the cape but for the most part we have adequate rainfall. And it's just one of those years at least so far where we're on the water side of average This summer's pretty amazing though to have this much rain it's very green out there. No one's lawns are burning out for sure. And i'm actually worried about fungus and things like that and my vegetable garden kinda going the other way too much rain. Good thing at this point. Yeah i was going to ask you. Even just the volatility crazy hot and june crazy wet and july does that affect our plants. Oh one hundred percent. I mean it's not going to affect for the most part it's not gonna affect perennials and trees and shrubs in a way that's you know might affect them a little bit this year. Things may not look good but it really does affect the vegetables My tomatoes are starting to get early. Blight lower leaves So i'm beginning to treat with some organic stuff to kind of get rid of that and the longer you have this type of weather you'll start to see some rotting occurring on vegetables especially and then if it were to last we'd start to see some problems on some of the other fruit crops and things like that things that are kind of annual crops can be really susceptible to big fluctuations. Lot of heat. Cool weather really. Wet not good for plants and dave in a sentence. when will it get nice again It'll be pretty nice on saturday. Although there's still a few showers sunday as my pick the weekend up near eighty plenty of sunshine. Get out and enjoy the great weather. All right go saturday. That's david epstein. Wb our meteorologist. Thanks you're welcome..
